Poets Souls

Written by: Larisa Rzhepishevska

I read the poets souls in the poems,
I read the poets inner world.
Pulse beats louder, then duller,
And all my doubts are just hurled.

The sadness sometimes a kiss cover,
Then suddenly curled at my feet,
Giving the whole body a heat,
The warmth of a true lover.

Fever passes through my nervous points,
Chill runs through the whole body,
I read the poets souls in the poems,
And feel that this soul is haughty.

I delve into the words and their nature,
Understanding destroys the walls,
Now I would like to capture
The main idea and the poems calls.

I read and my joy is in full swing,
My own soul gets the wings,
I am ready to fly with the singer,
Like me the poet is a swinger.

I am with that one who dared
To plunge into the holy spring naked,
I am with that one who shared
An inspiration and was not faked.

I read the poets souls in the poems.
But do I read the souls of reality or dream?
Let’s deem that no one here and there lies,
And the law of poetry is always precise.
